The Comedy for Cure Kids Road Show will leave Invercargill next month to cover the length of the country and the show producer is wondering if any of our Cycling Southland road cycling enthusiasts would like to join them on the first leg of their journey?'
If anyone is keen to join the journey - even if just for a bit - let Melissa know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, read all about it ...
The Comedy For Cure Kids Road Show is an epic 10-day cycle race from the bottom of the South Island, to the top of the North Island raising money and awareness for Red Nose Day.
The Road Show will feature teams of celebrities, television personalities and our most loved sporting heroes in a 24 hour a day relay race. A crew of support people, fellow cycling enthusiasts and Red Nose Day supporters will join them as they spread the Red Nose Day word and raise money for Cure Kids.
Jono Pryor, Ben Boyce and Guy Williams will head the teams.
The Road Show will be stopping at 9 towns across the country. The Jono and Ben at Ten crew will film segments in each town that will be broadcast in the Comedy For Cure Kids show on the 23rd of August.
In addition, when the Road Show comes to many of the towns, communities and schools involved in the Red Nose Day appeal will come together to see the celebrities off on their next stage of the journey.
We’ll be going through:
And finally, Cape Reinga
Each participating Celebrity/Personality will be asked to contribute time and energy for the cause, and depending on their level of fitness and strength, will commit a number of hours to the relay race.
The race will commence in Invercargill on the 2 August, and finish at the Cape on the 11 August.
There are night-time stages of the route scheduled on Friday 2 August leaving Invercargill - and then onwards towards Dunedin. Then again out of Dunedin from about 6pm on Saturday 3 August.
If this sounds like something that any Cycling Southland cyclists may be interested in being a part of just let Melissa know at the office and she will get you in touch with teh show Producer Charlotte Hobson for more information. They have a team of organisers, safety vehicles, safety people and bike techs supporting the cyclists.
